Srinagar: Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Tuesday lashed out at New Delhi for raising Baluchistan issue from the pulpit of Red Fort in New Delhi.
"6 protestors dead in Kashmir in 24 hours but WTH let's go sort out Baluchistan since we are doing such a good job in J&K at the moment!" Omar wrote on twitter.
Earlier Congress had launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, accusing him of "ruining" India's case on Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK) by raking up the issue of Baluchistan in his Independence Day address.
"PoK is our right. Our entitlement. We will support it. But by bringing in Balochistan, you are ruining our case. We are going to ruin our own case on PoK," Congress leader and former External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid had said.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi referred to Baluchistan in his Independence Day speech on Modnday.
